What our Scholars say...

Daniel Si Zhi Wen

Being awarded the scholarship from Astro, I am deeply grateful of the opportunity provided to pursue an undergraduate degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering at a university of my choice. With the support of Astro, I was able to focus on my studies without having to worry about financial commitments throughout the course. Besides that, an internship was included, allowing me to gain first hand experience in a corporate work setting and getting a feel of what to expect when I start working for Astro after graduation. As a scholar, I was also given the opportunity to participate in leadership programmes, to develop essential soft skills and discover my own's strengths and weaknesses.

I applied for the Astro scholarship with plans to obtain a degree in English Literature. Given the niche nature of my degree, I wasn’t sure I stood a chance – but throughout the process I was heartened to see that Astro gave consideration to a wide breadth of fields, including my own. The interviews felt more like insightful conversations that truly dived into my thought process and creative thinking, while also allowing me to have my say about local content creation. It’s been a decade since I graduated, but I am still at Astro and passionate about the work I’ve been able to do here. The Astro scholarship was a launchpad that allowed me to live a dream – it’s an experience for which I will always be grateful.

The Astro Scholarship allowed me to pursue the degree of my dreams. Despite my university course being out of my comfort zone, Astro gave me the confidence that Going Beyond was the way to go. Being multidisciplinary in nature, my course gave me good exposure in entrepreneurship, art, design and engineering and thus made me an adaptable creative practitioner. Working with different softwares at university equipped me with transferable skills which made the learning curve for my current role smooth. I continue to keep abreast with the development in the fields I studied. My goal is to use all that I have learnt and continue to learn to provide the best for Astro.
